Entrants will upload their own versions of Nicole Scherzinger's smash hit "Baby Love." Anyone can view and vote on the entries online. A grand prize winner will be selected from the top 100 entries with the highest vote-score. The second place winner will receive a Samsung MX10 flash memory camcorder and the third place winner will receive a Samsung P2 portable media player.
"Being featured in Nicole Scherzinger's video for 'Baby Love' was great and we are excited to integrate music lovers into the experience," said Reid Sullivan, vice president of marketing for Samsung Electronics America.
